I recently rented my home to someone and came to visit the property and I was told I had to give them 24 hours notice. Being new to the landlord business I didn't realize this, but I was told by the realtor that they moved out. Was I wrong?

You can always visit the property

But unless an emergency or long time tenant absence, to enter the property I think the tenant is correct wrt the 24 hour notice.

Thank you! Yes, they were gone.....neighbor and realtor called and said they had a large moving truck outside the house. I went to the property about a week later and saw upon entering some of their personal things still there. I called them and I was told by them that they moved into their new home, but that they would be back to clean up. I figured since I came such a long way that I would stay and clean up a bit for them. It seemed to backfire on me. Thanks for your reply.

Hear you there. We are into it for about 8 years now and I cant wit for the days when I can get out of it.

you do have to give notice when coming to your property. It should be in the lease.

Good luck

Yes, it said 24 hours notice "when possible" -- it also said in emergencies landlord may enter without notice. Technically, I suppose we felt it was an emergency (we wanted to check heat, hotwater and a possible faulty smoke detector that my neighbor thought he heard beeping) since we were told that they moved out by our realtor and neighbor. I did call and speak to the tenant to say that I was there and why. They had been gone for over a week. Thank you everyone for responding....I just feel so guilty about checking on my own property and I don't know why....after all it is mine. Thanks again!
